Colorful Rainbow Dotted Mani

Since dots are one of my favorite and easiest Mani's to create,I decided to create a colorful Mani using colors from the rainbow.
I started with my base Broadway-Ascending Celine.Then applying my dots starting with the top (red)creating random sized dots.Then working my way to the tip overlapping dots to finish dotting with purple.Then I took a white polish and put dots inside of random other dots.

Layered Purple & Black

  1. Start with you base.I chose Sinful Colors-Fig-I placed a piece of scotch tape about 1/4 in. up my nail tip only because I didn't want to go to the tip of my nail with the polish.You can however go right to the tip.If you do allow for drying time in between coats,otherwise it will pull at the color underneath and pull it towards the front of the tip leaving a hump.Hope you understand what I just said.Sometimes I confuse myself! 
  2. Then apply black or whatever color you choose as your second color.
  3. Then switch to other color-Fig
  4. Then black
  5. Then fig
  6. black
  7. Then using a small nail art brush I brushed on the last color.

Then slowly pull your tape downwards.You can allow the coats to dry a tad in between,however if you wait too long the tape will leave a harsh edge and possibly pull your polish off.

Then I just couldn't leave it alone so I added dots with the tip of a pin.

Graffiti Nails

Graffiti Nails is a quick Mani you can create,and the beauty of Graffiti Nails is that they don't have to be perfect,and they will still look awesome.I chose Green,Black,Pink and White.Plus you don't have to let it dry in between.I also applied a clear coat before it dryed which will kinda of smear it a little,but it doesn't matter because it gives it a better effect.
I started out with a Green Base,and Black on the Pinkie.
Then using your brush with little polish on it quickly swipe the next color on in random spots.I used Black.

Then I applied white
 Then Pink,and just some random lines of white with a nail stripping brush.

Wow I was Nominated For A Liebster Award

I was recently nominated for the Liebster Award by Nailsxo

Thank You so much for Nominating me Nailsxo

Honestly up until now I really didn't know what a Liebster Award was,and never thought I would get nominated in a gazillion years.Just in case you don't know either.. it's an award given to a blogger from another blogger who deserves recognition.It also encourages them to keep blogging.Honestly I think every blogger deserves recognition.
Liebster with German origins meaning "Dearest" is given to up and coming bloggers with fewer followers.
The Liebster award is similar to a chain letter which is meant to be passed onto other bloggers.So keeping it going will only benefit your blog.

General Rules

  • Copy and paste the award to your blog
  • Link back to the blogger who nominated you
  • Answer the questions the blogger asked you by creating a new blog post
  • I chose to Nominate 5-11 bloggers with less than 300 bloglovin followers
  • Create a new list of 11 questions for your nominated bloggers
  • Inform your nominated bloggers by leaving a comment on their blog with a link back to your liebster award information.

Here are the questions Nailsxo had me answer...

What is your favorite brand of polish?

Honestly I don't have a favorite brand.I tend to purchase less expensive ones.I like wetnwild,sally hansen,la colors,spoiled,pure ice,and I found they work just as well if not better than the more expensive brands.

What  is your least favorite brand of polish?

None so far I have yet to find a least favorite brand.

Do you have any pets?

Yes...I have 2 cats.One is 7 years old,and a shih tzu (dog in case you didn't know what that is)and he is 1.5 years old.

In one word how would your family and friends describe you?

Quiet (SHHHHH)

Are you currently involved in any nail polish groups?


Who is your favorite celebrity?

Hmmm my favorite celebrity??I have so many favorites.It's so hard to choose just one.I like Blake Sheldon,Jennifer Aniston,Julia Roberts,Jason statham,and the list can go on & on.

Who is your favorite singer/band?

I love Daughtry.He has an awesome voice,and for bands...I love older bands like Journey.

What is your favorite nail polish color to use?

My go-to color has to be black.Black looks awesome plain or with any color.I also love purple and green...well and pinks.

Which movie genre would you say you like the best?

I love a good comedy,like the ones that make your gut hurt and your eyes water from laughing so hard.I also love dramas.I'm a sucker for sad chick flicks.

Do you have any tips for growing strong,healthy nails?

Well for one don't bite them,and two use gloves when washing dishes.Water dries your nails and cuticles.I love using extra virgin coconut oil along with 100% natural African nut Shea butter to make my cuticles softer and strengthen my nails.

If you could live anywhere in the world where would you live?

Definitely somewhere warmer.Living in the great north east is so cold.Australia seems like it would be a beautiful,peaceful place to live or Hawaii.

I chose to pick 6 blogs....So here are my 6 nominated blogs

I chose these based solely on my own opinion.I selected these either because I loved their posts,pics or nail designs.I actually went through tons of nail blogs on Bloglovin and these are the ones I chose.
